Alice Five Years Later

June 24, 2019 - June 25, 2019

| $1,795

Five years ago the United States Supreme Court issued a decision in Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank, 134 S.Ct. 2347 (2014), which significantly changed the way courts and patent examiners evaluated patent eligibility of computer implemented innovation in the United States.

Please join us on Monday, June 24, 2019 and Tuesday, June 25, 2019, for a wide-ranging discussion of Alice and how to protect computer related innovation in America.

Day 1 of this Symposium will focus on Alice, Supreme Court precedent on §101, Federal Circuit attempts to interpret and apply Supreme Court precedent, how the USPTO is interpreting Alice, and what Alice has meant to patent value. Day 2 will focus on the future, with discussions on legislative efforts to fix §101, as well as how to protect computer implemented innovation generally, with specific discussion focusing technology fields such as artificial intelligence and security.
